Utopia denied, reality smacks Swedes right between the eyes and legs…
– Women in town should not be worried, but must think about how to behave. Perpetrators are looking for solitary men and women, so it is important how to move. Feel free to walk on illuminated streets and not alone in alleys or parks. Feel free to talk to someone on the way home, ask for a push or go collectively with established companies, says Mikael Hedström.
Should women really be thinking of it?
– We take security-creating measures, but we cannot be in all places. Both men and women have to think ahead.
